This is in Tahiti (not Chuuk) -- I didn't see a country choice for Polynesia. This sea plane is a popular wreck dive just offshore. It's about 60 feet deep and there's not much color. Wrecks can be a little spooky and this one's no different. I don't know if anyone lost their life here -- it could be an artifical reef for all I know.

I do not know much about submarine acitvity and shooting in such conditions. However, the picture is beautiful, with these light greys over the shell of the plane and the diver has been very well captured, in a nice position.Very nicely realized.

Hello! This must be a really nice experience to dive between wrecks. Very good quality under water picture. Interesting composition with the diver and a nose of Catalina. Great shot! Andrzej

This is a great shot! One can see the abundance of marine life around the plane, but for some reason the plane it's not yet covered... maybe it takes more than 50 years to develop that. The diver in the photo is well placed, and I liked the timing you decided to take the shot, with all the bubbles coming out of him/her. Unfortunately there's some graininess effect through the picture, otherwise I would suggest adjusting the picture to be a bit more sharp. Great job! Thanks for sharing.
